I'm aiming to make a release of Seam Cron available within the next two weeks.
Currently there is an outstanding issue (https://issues.jboss.org/browse/WELD-862
prevents Cron from running properly with Weld. I have been able to carry on developing
Cron by testing it against OpenWebBeans, but obviously if we are to release a Seam module
it should work against Weld.
It would be nice if WELD-862 could be fixed as soon a possible so that all future versions
will work well with Cron.
But more importantly I also probably need to do something special in Cron so that it will
work with the version of Weld already deployed in JBoss AS and Glassfish, which will
contain the bug. The workaround mentioned in the bug report is to deep copy the
InvocationContext. I attempted to do this by serialising and unserialising the
InvocationContext but couldn't due to UnserializableExceptions. Does anyone have any
advice for me about how I might be able to work around this bug to support existing
versions of Weld?
